Hand Jive

Boy, am I beat. It's shaping up to be a DORMA week, rather than a DORMA-day, but I know a few of you are wondering how Phil's hand surgery went on Thursday, so I'm writing a quick post now, even though the couch is playing our song, heh.

So! It turns out that he had tendon AND nerve damage, but they were able to repair it, and barring any complications, he should retain full use and feeling in that finger. It really is quite a painful procedure, so he wasn't exactly in great spirits on Friday and Saturday. Well.... that changed when we went to celebrate his birthday on Saturday and got to enjoy a dance with a Brazilian Carnaval dancer!
As you can see, he really can Walk like an Egyptian ;)

By the end of the evening, we had all developed a sympathetic hand limp.

All joking aside, it was a fun evening. Good food (SO much food), good people, good company.

Earlier that day I visited my mom and step-dad, who also happens to be an amateur photographer, and we took a few pictures...

I'll tell you all about it... next time :)

Happy Knitting Everyone!

Happy Birthday Phil! Glad the surgery went ok, hope the pain isn't too bad. I'm sure the Brazilian Dancer helped ;)
Can't wait to see "The Big Reveal" of the garment next time!
